Doesn't help in this case, but the accident exposes the flimsy front end of the Swift.

It's not the right forum to discuss the build quality of any car, but if you notice a few posts earlier; a swift did well against a BMW, however people died due to their negligence (didn't buckle-up). In this case, it was different sized vehicles and hence the larger damage. IMO surely no sedans or SUV's Pillars can take such brunt.

That happened at the Tindivanam intersection. That's the most dangerous intersection on NH45! Road takes a very sharp left curve when you're heading towards trichy. It'll appear as though the road is going straight, only regulars on that route can speed through that intersection. I have seen on several occasions the cars that were ahead of me almost going into the opposite lane only to notice the intersection at the last second & swerve back :/

RIP to the 4 souls.

A speeding Audi A4 hit 3 motorcyclists, a rickshaw and a car - 5 were injured (as per hearsay, 2 have expired) including a pregnant woman and 2 sweepers.

The driver of the car, Amol Patel fled the spot in another car immediately after this happened. Angry people vandalized the car. When the cops raided his home, his brother and father were also missing. The culprit surrendered at the police station later.

And NDTV and Marathi Channels reporting an Accident between a TT and a Luxury Bus on Mumbai Ahmedabad highway killing 11 including a 5 year old child.

Reports mention this to be a head on and images too hint the same. Wondering if this was a case of wrong side driving!

Am sure we will get more reports soon. This seems to have happened within Thane limits and so am expecting this to be between Ghodbunder and Manor.

I felt very sorry on seeing the pic posted. This is sheer speeding. Maintaining 80+ on Indian highways is reasonably good and safe. Any unpredicted interference can easily be judged and avoided. Especially this NH45 route has almost become like any other city road these days at least till Tindivanam. People still treat this as an highway and floor the pedal.

Another day another accident, RIP the deceased. It seems a good number of gruesome accidents are involving the people heading to pilgrimage/marriage/public meets in a group.

- Take unworthy vehicle on road, load it with more people than prescribed capacity
- Try to cover more places than possible for any sane person, so speeding / rash driving
- night driving involving already exhausted diver(s), carrying inflamable items (stoves, cylinder)
- the attitude/misadventure owing to mob mentality ( stopping in middle of road, screaming, road rage)

Now put some/all of this on a unknown terrain/roads, a perfect recipie for disaster/accident

Witnessed this crash at 8 AM in Sullia yesterday.

4 kids on 2 unregistered RC390's with no gear (we all know 'ATGATT' - All The Gear All The Time' but please don't go off on a lecture). They saw us riding SBKs and went into Rossi mode trying to overtake us and cut us off.

Since it had just rained and we were riding up twisties, we were all below 50 km/h. While the boys on one bike slowed down just in time for the turn, the other bike took a turn at crazy speed, skidded, flipped the bike and got thrown off. They both went flying into the hillock (which was soft thanks to the rains), hit it and fell between the hill and the concrete barrier/gutter. Both helmetless wonders were badly injured.

One was brought to Mangalore in a serious condition. I dropped in at the hospital later in the evening and thankfully he seemed to be fine, but shaken.

I don't know if this video is already posted , but even if it had been, I would not mind sharing it again !

I always wear a seat belt before I move the vehicle but I generally do not insist others to wear it too but this video has changed my perception.

Now, no way I am going to allow people in the car I drive unfastened which is a serious threat not only to themselves but the others too !

Today morning's Accident

Time :02:30 AM
Location: Near Egipura Signal, Bangalore
Reason : Drunken Driving

The car had a team-bhp sticker behind it.

Casualities : No, They both hurt their Jaw and the driver could not speak [infact they were lucky enough to be alive since they hadn't worn seat belts]
They both played a lot of drama in front of the people and police that there was a third guy who drove the car and he ran away.

I hope they were booked by the cops for DUI. They could have easily hurt or worse killed someone.

I do sympathize with the family left behind, but what would you call irresponsible joyriding in what pretty much amounts to a stolen car? No fault of theirs?

That didn't seem to deter them from indulging in potentially suicidal activities, did it?

Until I saw your comment, I thought it was an EB connection box (yes, you are right, it looks much more like telephone) and that, if it was, they were lucky not to fry themselves!
